topic into another thread.]
When saving Illustrator files as EPS you have the choice to select
the Illustrator version, including a warning that you may loose some
features when saving as an older versions.
I also remember that there was a case when dashed lines from an
Illustrator EPS "escaped" from the encapsulation and created dashed

In other words, I hear advice that you should stick to a certain
Illustrator version level for all EPS graphics unless your FrameMaker
version is younger than your Illustrator version - presumably to give
engineers the chance to improve the EPS import filter (or the PS
Or is that a myth? Will FrameMaker 7.0 without a problem process EPS
files at Illustrator CS3 level?
